      March 2007 I bought a horribly neglected (and chain smoked in) 20 year old, 940sft, two storey condo, and gutted / rebuilt it by myself (well with a bit of help from my dad from time to time), mostly on my weekends, over a 3 month span.

      I sold it July 2010, for a profit of $96,000.

      It started off like this:















      BTW, that is DIRT, not a shadow:

      Huge development.

      I have weird food intolerances. Lactose, wheat gluten, ginger, etc. Up until yesterday, beer was on that list.

      Last night I decided to crack open a leftover Corona. And I just had another with dinner.

      Absolutely no issues or side effects whatsoever. I've missed beer so much. I'm really hoping this isn't just a fluke.

      My job has been going spectacularly well. I got a call from the recruiter who placed me that they did a follow up on me, and my boss and her boss had nothing but glowing praise for me and my work so far. It's interesting, engaging, fulfilling, and actually matters to the company.

      And, as icing on the cake, I found out my boss, who is pretty cute, is big into cars; she DDs an E46 ZHP stick shift, and is thinking about buying a roadster as her third car (she and her husband also have an RR sport.). She commented on my S2000 and said we'll have to race when she gets whatever she ends up with (earlier candidates are a Solstice GXP and a 370Z)

      My V70 died 2 weeks ago, thought it was the fuel pump. Having just replaced everything on the car I did not want to take it back to the shop since I would rather buy groceries that buy my mechanic a boat. Husband did some research, decided to replace the fuel relay and the car is working again!

      Fuel pump = $350 part and lots of work
      Fuel relay = $35 part and tiny work

      Marrying awesome dude who can fix cars = WIN!

      Vacuuming the shag rug in my living room today I hear a loud noise like something metal got sucked up, open up the canister and it was a diamond ring! Texted my ex room mate about it, turns out it was his ex wife's - He's owes me 3 months rent/utilities... I jokingly suggested I just pawn it, and we'll call it even - his response was "Hell yeah, good idea". She threw it at him a few months back and he couldn't find it... Dropped it off with a family friend/jeweler before work, finally got a chance to look at it - It's Tiffany & Co, platinum with .5ct diamond - He offered me $3500 for it.

      Hell yeah.

      Covers everything plus a few hundred, which I know will definitely help him out a lot right now. I'm glad I looked lol, typically I just assume it's a penny or something and dump it anyway.

      Nice to finally have a little padding in my savings account again.

      Crazy this tiny little ring could be worth so much

      I've got a bunch of high end vintage audio gear I'm clearing out, restored Marantz 4270 - better than new condition; Pioneer SX-5590, 8/10; Concept 16.5, 8/10 cosmetically - 10/10 function. Various high end vintage speakers: Rectilinear Research, AR, Kenwood, Infinity, McIntosh, Leslie 251. PM me for details, clearing out to finance home theater upgrade.

      That ridiculously rad. $24 bucks + shipping for a t-shirt, however, is not.
